Hyper­t­ufa How-To

The rough, craggy sur­face of a stone trough pro­vides beau­ti­ful tex­ture on your deck or pa­tio. The prob­lem is that these gor­geous planters can be hard to find, ex­pen­sive and very heavy. In­stead of blow­ing your bud­get and your back, make a hyper­t­ufa trough like the one above. It gives you the same gor­geous look, weighs less and is a frac­tion of the cost. You can get all the ma­te­ri­als in the list (right) from the lo­cal hard­ware store. Fol­low along with the steps to make this 14-inch-square-by- 6-inch-tall tra­di­tional trough. Then turn the page to see how to fin­ish it off and find a few twists on hyper­t­ufa con­tain­ers.

For this trough, use 20 cups of each in­gre­di­ent.
